Kellie Leitch is playing a dangerous game - 2016-09-08
I admit it … I was confused. When Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch sent out a survey recently asking respondents if the Canadian government should "screen potential immigrants for anti-Canadian values," I didn't know what to make of it.
As a lawyer, I'm sensitive to the fact that, on its own, a question does not imply a particular answer. In fact, for a survey question to be legitimate, it can't be leading respondents towards a specific answer. If it does, it's a push-poll, not a survey.
So was the public face of the infamous "barbaric cultural practices" tip line returning to poke the bear? Or was she conducting genuine social research?
